Tales from the Trailer

“Tales from the trailer”. A Heritage Lottery funded project. It is the result of 18 months research and hard work to capture 20 oral histories from the site residents of Shirenewton and Roverway.

This exciting and innovative project uses new media techniques to record and document the cultures of 2 very different Gypsy and Traveller (GT) communities across their sites in Cardiff, and provide a unique new digital platform for the creation of a touring multi-media exhibition to preserve and promote this culture both to the Gypsy and Traveller communities throughout Wales and also to the “settled” community nationally. This project from start to finish will be steered and led by the GT community to ensure a true representation of the Cardiff GT community; it’s values, beliefs and realities.
